1)  Rs.6400  2)  Rs.6500 
3)  Rs.7200  4)  Rs.7500 
5)  None of these 
Answer : Rs.6400
Explanation :
Explanation :
Explanation:
Let the sum invested in Scheme A be Rs. x and that in Scheme B be Rs. (13900  x).
Then, (x x 14 x 2)/100 + ((13900  x) x 11 x 2) /100= 3508
28x  22x = 350800  (13900 x 22)
or 6x = 45000
or x = 7500.
So, sum invested in Scheme B = Rs. (13900  7500) = Rs. 6400.

Q2.  A person invested some amount at the rate of 12% simple interest and a certain amount at the rate of 10% simple interest. He received yearly interest of Rs. 130. But if he had interchanged the amounts invested, he would have received Rs.4 more as interest. How much did he invest at 12% simple interest ? 
1)  Rs.400  2)  Rs.500 
3)  Rs.700  4)  Rs.800 
5)  None of these 
Answer : Rs.700
Explanation :
Explanation :
Explanation :
Let the amount invested at 12% be x and the amount invested at 10% be y respectively
( x x 12 x 1)/100 +( y x 10 x 1)/100 = 130
1.2x + y = 1300
Similarly, 1.2y + x = 1340
or (1.2x) x 1.2 + 1.2y = 1300 x 1.2
x +1.2y = 1340
or 0.44x = 1560  1340 = 220
or x = (220/0.44)  Rs. 500
or y = 1300  1.2 x 500 = Rs. 700

Explanation :

( x x 12 x 1)/100 +( y x 10 x 1)/100 = 130
1.2x + y = 1300
Similarly, 1.2y + x = 1340
or (1.2x) x 1.2 + 1.2y = 1300 x 1.2
x +1.2y = 1340
or 0.44x = 1560  1340 = 220
or x = (220/0.44)  Rs. 500
or y = 1300  1.2 x 500 = Rs. 700

3)  Rs. 6,400  4)  Rs. 7200 
5)  None of these 
Answer : Rs. 7200
Explanation :
Explanation :
We know that Sum = (S.I X 100 )/ R X T
= (Diff. in S.I X 100 ) / Diff. in rate X Time
= (72 X100)/ 2 X 5 = Rs. 7200.

Q8.  A person deposited Rs.8000 which amounted to Rs.9200 after 3 years at simple interest . Had the interest been 2% more, how much he would get ? 
1)  Rs.8,660  2)  Rs.9,680 
3)  Rs.10,620  4)  Rs.11,540 
5)  None of these 
Answer : Rs.9,680
Explanation : Given, P = 8,000 , T=3 yrs A= 9200
Explanation : Given, P = 8,000 , T=3 yrs A= 9200
So, S.I = 9200  8000 = 1200
Then , R = (1200 X 100 ) / 8000 X 3 = 5%
After 2% rate increases , new rate will be 7%.
So, new SI=( 8000 X 3 X 7) / 100 = 1680
Thus, new amount = 8000 + 1680 = 9,680
